From 11 to 15 October 2021, several representatives of the LOWINFOOD project participated in Sardinia 2021, the 18th International Symposium on waste management and sustainable landfilling, taken place in Cagliari, Italy.

Chaired by Silvia Scherhaufer (BOKU), five partners of LOWINFOOD offered a workshop on the socio-economic and environmental aspects of food waste management. They discussed the methodologies that are being followed in LOWINFOOD to assess the impact of the innovations, together with the challenges they are facing when implemented in practice.
